Water has no mind. The wind no memories. The trees no opinions.

Yet, their movements, their changes are constant and predictable. Even the trajectory we humans take through life can be anticipated to some degree.

In nature all is economy. Yet, our self-consciousness produces motives which move us away from nature and its predictability. In that, we create much beauty, but also much ugliness and pain. So much or our time and effort here in this life is wasted on mistrust, hate and destruction, all too often based on little if any, real knowledge, but rather on barely considered opinion.

We often claim to have at hand a lot of facts, but we all too often come up far short of wisdom.
